There are now several ways to enjoy the benefits of a clean renewable energy system on your property. Solar homeowners can choose to buy a system outright, lease a solar system from West Coast Solar, purchase solar energy from us with a power purchase agreement, or finance a system.

Purchase a Solar System

Ownership is a popular option for a variety of reasons. It enables families to benefit from a reduced federal tax burden with the 30% tax credit, while raising their property value. In many cases, ownership allows homeowners to capture the greatest cost savings and economic benefit from going solar.

Solar System Loans

As lending institutions become more familiar with solar energy, they are recognizing solar as a safe, financially-sound investment. There are now many options available to make solar ownership a reality, as local community and regional providers, and even national banks are increasingly offering solar loans to homeowners and businesses.  

Property-Assessed Clean Energy Programs

This program for energy efficiency improvements and renewable energy systems helps eliminate the upfront cost of solar to homeowners, with little or no upfront cost. This innovative loan program through municipalities allows property owners to make additional payments with their property taxes, typically over a 10 to 20 year period.

CaliforniaFIRST Financing Program

CaliforniaFIRST is a Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) program. This innovative form of financing was created in partnership with state and local governments to encourage energy and water efficiency and to create jobs. And because CaliforniaFIRST is government supported, we’re able to offer affordable long-term financing. Simply apply, complete your projects, and repay on your property taxes over the course of up to 25 years.  Read more.

Lease or Power Purchase Agreements

West Coast Solar’s simple program is a hassle-free way to lock in low energy rates with clean solar energy that is generated on your property. The cost savings available from solar energy in Northern California grows as electricity rates increase over time. We handle the entire installation and perform all required maintenance or repairs for the life of the system.

The West Coast Solar team is happy to explain all your financing and ownership options to find the best arrangement for your family. Our commitment to a customized approach to solar, combined with high quality workmanship has earned us a strong reputation across the Sonoma County and throughout Northern California.

West Coast Solar offers unique financing options for your Bay Area solar project
Until a few years ago, most solar systems were purchased. Back then, solar systems were more expensive and there were fewer financing options like there are today, so it made it difficult for many home and business owners to afford solar.

Professional and painless
